Is there any site that lists particular titles for these countries? So it is the country in which the story is set?

 

Re the 666 global reading challenge:
It is either the country in which the book is set or the country of the author.
Here is the link - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/537414

Edwardstreet, I could offer you either:
My Invented Country by Isabel Allende (Chile) or
Havana Bay by Martin Cruz Smith (Cuba)
Both are TBR but I can move onto them fairly soon.
